Homework: Daily Reading — May 10, 2012 — “The fish stinks from the head”

Time: 6:50 AM

Weather: 46 Degrees, and sunny. Seems like it’s going to be a warm day.

Cards Drawn: Clouds + Tower + Scythe

Key Card Focus: Clouds

Keywords: Confusion / Complication + Lonely / Official + Final / Aggressive

Clouds + Tower + Scythe

Prediction:

This is going to be a day of complications and confusion. Doesn’t seem like a particularly good day, considering that 2/3 of the cards are negative, which consequently paints the neutral card (Tower) negative as well.

Feels like the main blow will come from work, since The Tower usually comes up in a daily reading around this concept for me.

Also, since the Scythe relates to teeth, and the top of The Tower in this deck kind of looks like teeth lets me understand that my toothache is just going to get worst.

Time: 09:50 PM

Accuracy: 90%

What Happened in relation to the cards:

This was indeed a crappy day. First of all my general physical condition got worst. My tooth is really hurting, and I am even more congested. Apparently, one of my students has been coming to school with Mono for the past two weeks, so I am at high risk for getting it. Also, while keeping the medial theme going, I saw my burn specialist this afternoon. This meeting made me feel quite upset because: (1) He was almost an hour late for the appointment; and (2) though he agreed that I absolutely need a compression garment, he couldn’t offer any help in regard to dealing with insurance. I despise the medical / insurance system in the US — in this arrangement the patient’s well being is really not a priority.

Finally, on the work front, I learned some disturbing news that proved yet again of the dirty politics that’s going on there. As we say in Hebrew, “the fish stinks from the head,” meaning that management is the nastiest part of a corporation, and if something is going wrong the leadership positions are the most responsible for it — unfortunately, they’re usually the least accountable.

Observations:

The Clouds, being the key card has definitely set the tone for my mood today. Things felt uncomfortable and depressing. The Tower + The Scythe seemed to represent medical issues (especially visiting a sergeant’s office, and dealing with toothache. They also added layers of loneliness and gloom.
